9 Words Women Use

*** Dari MILIS tetangga....I find this very amusing..:D

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.


(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

What I Made Today

Last week, in the exhibition one of my Uncle's friend came and ask if I can make a dress of her 2,5 years old DD. So, I made this today, and add a dupatta (stole) for her since nowadays she like to dress up like her mother (she always wears salwar kameez). Unfortunately, no one make "salwar kameez" for 2 years old. Well, this is not actually a "salwar" but she said that will do for her DD. *mental note: learn to make salwar :D*

So, today, I made this pair for the little girl..she wants something in PINK..:). It's very simple one. I got the Tute for the peasant top from Vegbee. She has the coolest Tutorial in her blog, btw..:D *thanks Vegbee*

The detail:

That's all for today....I have several projects in mind, hopefully will get them done before November.

My sons singing to me while I was writing this:

In the morning, in the morning..we say good morning

In the afternoon, in the afternoon,..we say good afternoon

In the evening, in the evening...we say good evening

In the night, in the night, when there's moon light

We kiss mom & dad Good Night...;)

So..I guess, I say Good Night too ...;)

Hasil Pameran Perdana

I'm officially back after my first ever exihibtion here . Well, it was a hectic week and the exhibition was extended for 1 day. In the beginning I really don't know what to expect. I keep varieties of stuff, from my handmade clothes/bags/pouches to Batik & Jilbab (itung-itung mempopulerkan jilbab disini..:D)

Anyway, it went off well and I got quite good response and even custom order..(YAY!!), some even asked to be informed when I have my next exhibition. InshaAllah, I will have my next exhibition on November, December and March 2009.

What I learnt from my fellow sellers are:

1. Most of them are homemakers who's doing their business from home. I met one lady, she must be over 60 years old. Her stall was opposite mine. She's selling Mekhala Chadar (Assamese Traditional Dress). She has her own boutique, she drives around her self (in this part of India this is something commendable!!). she teaches village girls to do embroidery and other needleworks. She's doing around 10 exhibition in and out of the city.

2. There's always someone who appreciate your handmade stuff.

well, in the beginning I'm not sure if someone even take a look at the dresses or bags that I made. And I was so happy that somebody ACTUALLY liked it and BOUGHT it ha ha ha...

3. Always come prepared..hehehe...I mean, like other details: white sheet to cover the walls & tables, nails, hammer, old bed cover to cover you stall at night..he he he...

I am afraid I didnt take much photos....malu.com. So, here are few fotos that I took....
